I understand the concerns, but the having ODF workshops / face-to-face
TC meetings in parallel to OpenOffice.org/KOffice/OASIS/... events makes
sense to me, because some key ODF people will already at those events
anyway. However, I'm not suggesting to do a lot of PR around such a
workshop. To me it's also more important to have people work on the
technical problems. Face-to-face interactions are often very helpful.
